Create a new Windows service for the COIN database
Creating new Oracle Service
On a Windows NT system, the Oracle background processes (DBW0, LGWR, etc) all run as one Windows NT service. Before you can start a new instance and execute the CREATE DATABASE statement that you just wrote, you must first create a new service for that instance. Oracle8 database provides a utility named ORADIM for this purpose. ORADIM is not Windows based, so you need to run it from the Windows command prompt.
Move your mouse over the following diagram to learn about the syntax to use when you create a new instance:
In this lesson's exercise, you will create the instance for your new database. After completing the exercise, you will open up the Services
control panel to look at your new service. In case you arenot familiar with the Services control panel, the following simulation shows you how
to open it, and how to find the services related to Oracle8.
